    Just had an OTA update and my maxx won't stop rebooting. it boots up and after about 15 seconds after the home screen loads, it power cycles. This has been happening for hours. How do I get pas this? reset it?

    I can get into the boot options by holding the power button+lower volume key. But even after scrolling to the option i want- factory for example, and pressing the up button to select it, the phone just continues normal boot procedue.

    how do I get this into safe mode? if there is one?

    how do I reset this thing or just get it out of the boot loop?

    edit: This was a rooted maxx

    Yeah man, it'll set u straight, has a step by step walkthrough, I used it to get rid of root before updating to 12.15.15...it kept my entitlement check too. I'm now on 12.15.15 stock with unlimited hotspot

    As long as there is FXZ and you can access fastboot, you're good.

    They blocked that exploit, but maxx owners reported success with rockmymoto...read up for yourself before you decide to go through with it

    is there any way i could rip a whole image off of a different, non-updated maxx and load it on mine in efforts to downgrade my phone or is that all not worth it?

    If you have a developer edition you should/may be able to do this, but a locked bootloader will likely prevent you from downgrading to older software.
